  1. Love the rack. Two questions- where did you get it? And isn't it upside down? I'd think the points would be the 'feet'.
  2. These are begging to be stripped and shellac'd. Wonderful figuring and the coloring is amazingly even for birch.
  3. Speaker pics should always include shots of the sides and tops imho. I think these are underrated speakers in the Klipsch line. I had a pair just like them I ended up giving to my father in law. They are a lot of speaker for less than $500, especially these days. GLWYS.
  4. Me too bud, me too. Most of the problem (to my understanding) stems from the lack of 'standards' in the hdmi standards. It's keeping me from buying a new 4k tv despite the fact I despise my current Visio 4k almost to the point of gleefully smashing it with a hammer. I'd love a simple 5.2 Processor and a separate 5 channel Hypex amp setup. I don't give a shit about atmos. It took 25 years for consistently good DD and DTS movie mixes to happen- same with games. If I want total speaker immersion, headphones win every time. I'm too freaking busy to screw around with this shit any more.
  5. Mine is a bit bigger unfortunately 17x5
  6. That's what I'm doing now. Some devices (google chromecast) have issues. I was just wondering if OP knew of work arounds with this unit.
  7. Trying to think how I could use this in a 4k setup. Let the tv do the switching and do fiber out to this? HDMI standards are worse today than this thing was made so I'm wondering how it would handle audio passed from the modern console video games. I think Atmos is pointless, so I'm fine with 5.2 DD and DTS, but I'm worried this wouldn't handle all the handshakes necessary these days.
  8. Measure the faceplate. I have one I bought for my 210fs that was not the correct size. Perhaps it will fit yours.
  9. That was my experience too. It was 'musical' but I went with a digital pre and never looked back. I've gotten to the point I'll trade miniscule noise and distortion for 'musical' euphonic distortion. As a bonus, it's achievable for a fraction of the price.
  10. I would want way more than 40db with that cart.
  11. I would rather have seen them keep it sealed and make them powered with DSP. That is where speaker design is headed.
  12. You should find out the exact specs of your preamp. There is a HUGE difference in the output of the Black and the AT. I looked briefly at the MapleTree sight and the only phono amp I see shows 40db of gain which is not enough unless you are using a step up transformer.
